COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Everything we love about classic German Pilsner with a hoppy Bohemian twist. Pils is a bright straw colored lager beer with playful carbonation topped with beautiful white foam lace. Delicate lightly toasted malt flavors underscore noble German hop character. Hallertau-grown Magnum hops deliver the lupulin foundation while generous amounts of Spalter Select hops bring floral aromatic and spicy herbal notes. As a twist on the traditional Pils, we dry hop with German Saphir for a touch of bergamot zest and lemongrass. A refreshing, light-bodied and hop-driven Pils.

Wow. Yes this is good. Lightly hazed yellow, frothy short head,slight lace. Lemon grainy sweet butter aroma. Grassy hoppy floral,citrus,sweet grainy malt deliciousness. Great concept,and it works well. I really like the german/boemian thing it does work. This beer here makes me proud to buy beer made in America! Not surpised that its a great beer, Firestone has created a great quality brand of beer. Everything they make is high quality. One of the best Pilsners Ive had ever.

Shared with EricTeusink. This was super fresh skunky hops awesomeness. Pours a completely clear gold with nice white head that clings to the glass throughout. Nose is more citrus than most pils with a clean malt profile and some of that known pils hops character as well. Taste is more fresh pils hops, citrus, and clean malt. Wonderful pils. And I am a sucker for a good one.

Pint at Falling Rock. Best way to describe this: solid, clean pils. It’s not an overhopped American take, but a solidly hoppy and remarkably clean pils. Lots of dough, crackers, spicy wooden hops, immaculately clean malt and hop balance. It’s a little late in the year for me to drink a lot of this, but next spring and summer it is on. It is on.

Bottle, crystal clear very light straw color. No head, just a quick fizzy effervescence. Pale malt light cidery aroma. Clean fairly bitter light grain and cereal flavor. Some nice hoppy tones late. A pilsener with some character. Nice

Very nice tones of citrus and just the right amount of bitterness. Had this at GABF and was very happy.

After having the Shorts Spruce Pils, everything else is playing catch up. This pours slightly darker than a traditional Pilsener with a slight white head. Piney scent. Good bite that masks a rather ho hum back end. Bottle - Shared with Westmeister

Draft at Euclid Hall in Denver, Colorado. The pour is clear golden with a thick one inch white head. Nice lace on the glass. The aroma is cracker biscuit malt along with floral grass hops. Fresh nose. The taste is a nice clean balance between the cracker malt and the softly bitter grass hops. The soft sweetness of the malt comes out a bit as the beer warms. The palate is light bodied, dry grassy finish. Nice Pils.

Bottle 2 months old. Pours crystal straw with a bit of lace. The aroma is really well expressed lightly toasted grain, grass, a bit of pepper, and lemony finish. The flavor is very clean herbal bitter, light citrus astringency. Feel is slick and lively. Probably the best American pils I have had. Awesome.

CanIHave4Beers (3138) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Pours a straw color with a small but thick head and nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma is Herbal and Pungent, a little salty with some nice yeasty doughiness & light citrus hoppiness.

The flavor is nicely bitter with a light doughy sweetness up front. Overall the beer is basically dry and has plenty of herbal hoppiness... It does have a mild cidery note and some light fruitiness in general.

A total shelf beer!
